While there may be no greater animal lover than me, I am perplexed as to the amount of attention the Globe paid to several cows rescued in Framingham when a barn roof collapsed. I am thrilled these poor creatures appear to be so well taken care of and, dare I say, loved. But where is the attention for the 90,000 cows and calves PER DAY that are slaughtered at factory farms in the United States so that people can have their burgers and steak? They are NOT well taken care of, and they certainly aren’t loved, except maybe for the billions of dollars they bring their owners.
